In Covenant

Being a Christian means living “in covenant” with God and each other.  A covenant is a special bond, and more than a simple contract.  Throughout Biblical history, we read of the theme of God’s binding himself to his people by promising to bless and save them. The biblical word for these loving promises is “covenant.”  At Liberti we use the word “covenant” for our membership because we seek to model that same covenant love in our relationships together as a community.

How to join Liberti:

  • Step 1: In-Covenant retreat. Several times a year, we offer one-day classes to introduce people at our church to the beliefs of Christian faith, and what it means to be a part of Liberti Collingswood.
  • Step 2: one-on-one connection with a church leader. Everyone who would like to join Liberti will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one, or as a family, with a church leader, where you’ll be able to share your story, ask further questions, and consider how to get connected and involved in the life of the church.
  • Step 3: covenant vows.  For those who would like to join themselves to Liberti Collingswood, the final step is to make public promises to God and his people in a worship service.  If you are becoming a Christian, this will also be an opportunity to celebrate the story of God’s grace in your life and be baptized.
